    1 x 10 question (chainguide)

    Hi guys,
    I just bought a used 2011 Fuel Ex 8 for 1000$ (!!!). I was thinking about converting it to a single ring setup in the front with a 32t. The options for a guide are pretty narrow since it's a press fit bb. So MRP 1x or E13 XCX with a high seat tube mount are pretty much the only options I can think of. But still, the location of the lower pivot on the seat tube makes me wonder if the guide will reach a 32t. Have any of you tried this setup? Will it work?

    Thanks

    I too am interested in this. Post some pics when you complete this.

    Just a side note, my Superfly has some odd mount by the BB.

    I used a C-chain guide works great and isnt more than 50 bucks. I have it on a Rumblefish witch also has press in bb. Only other thing u need is a bash guard for the outer ring like the E-13 bash guard.

    heres the c-guide

    Raceface single 32t ring and light weight bash are <100g together and $60 or so. K-Edge Cross catcher ~$50. Works very well for me with Shadow+ rd.

    Alternative to N-Gear jump stop?
